REPOD - Your source for scientific policy advice documents



Scientific policy and social advice has become increasingly important in recent years, but access to policy papers, expert opinions, recommendations and other documents from scientific policy advice is often difficult. Until now, there has been no centralised collection and research channel for scientific policy advice documents.

REPOD was created to facilitate access to scientific advice documents. Our platform was developed with scientific expertise and with the involvement of users and producers of advisory documents. It offers a structured collection of documents from different organisations.
